This follows the prime minister's promise at last week's Conservative party conference to put an additional 5,000 police officers on the beat throughout the country.
Mr Baldry says he hopes Oxfordshire will get its fair share.
He commented: 'There are actually more police officers in Banbury now than there were two years ago, so I wouldn't want there to be an impression there had been a steady decline, but I would like to see even more.
'I very much hope that he will have taken on board the various comments we have made - not least about the funding of pensions -to ensure that a goodly number of the new police posts announced by the prime minister last week in Blackpool do actually come here to the Thames Valley. They will be very welcome'.
The introduction of the new police funding formula for home office police grant result in a reduction of £7m in central government support for Thames Valley Police in the current year. This will lead to an overall reduction of more than 200 posts during the financial year 1995-96.
